Grand Knight Message - July 2010

Sunday, July 18, 2010 7:25 AM | Rafael Betancourt (Administrator)
Dear Brother Knights,

Last month we had elections for the 2010 Columbian Year and the following officers were elected: GK, Rafael Betancourt; DGK, Martin Orlando; Chancellor, Matt Noisat; Warden, Jan Smits; Recorder, Tom Gall; Treasurer, Gary Delucchi; Advocate, Chris Garton-Zaversky; Inside Guard, Darren O’Neill; Outside Guard, Ike Latoza; Trustee 3, Duane Zampedri; Trustee 2, Israel Gonzalez; Trustee 1, Vince Gonzalez.

For my second term as GK, I reappointed Br Martin Orlando as Membership Director, Br. Israel Gonzalez, as Vocations Director, and Br. J. Vicente Gonzalez for Pro-life (Mass of Reparation). I also appointed Br. Wayne Cope as Community Director. Br. Vicente also has graciously volunteered to be nominated for the position of Financial Secretary (appointed by Supreme), replacing Br. Dave Williams. Many thanks to Br. Williams for his many years of service to the Council. There are still plenty of opportunities for service and many directors to be appointed so I encourage everyone not to be shy and volunteer.

I also want to congratulate Brothers Martin Orlando, Gary Delucchi, Gilbert Rodriguez, Tony Trias, and John Mlnarik for advancing to full Knighthood within our Order achieving their Third Degree on June 19th at St. Lawrence.

With about 25 people in attendance, our June Social, was a great success. Plenty of good food cooked by Gary Delucchi and Duane Zampedri. After dinner we presented a $500 RSVP Scholarship to Anthony Uytingco. Anthony shared his experience as a seminarian and asked that we pray for him and for vocations.
Our next event is the Annual Council Picnic that will be held at Bowers Park on July 24th from 11am-3pm organized by Martin Orlando and Gary Delucchi.

Finally, we will host the Handicapables on 8/21 at St. Justin – Brothers Israel, Nick Rossi and George Garcia will coordinate the event.

Vivat Jesus!
SK Rafael Betancourt, GK
